    Zoom ECM-3 reviews

    ECM-3 Extension Cable with Action Camera Mount (9.8') is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful addition to the Zoom family This may not be an item I need often but it is unique in being able to get the stereo signal of a zoom head back to the recorder from a remote location, allowing you to place the mic in tight spots for filming. This accessory has high build quality that is typical of Zoom's recent products . As another reviewer pointed out, the main drawback is that Zoom puts the gain controls on the mic heads, so once it is in place, there is no way of controlling the volume from the recorder. Another inconvenience is that the cable is on the stiff side, making a mic mounted on a small tripod less stable. This is an accessory that makes your Zoom modular recorder more versatile.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great...but how do I reach the gain aall the way over there? This is a great addition to the Zoom H5, H6, or others in the capsule line up. It not only provides length for the microphone from the recorder, but you can also use it so that you can mount the microphone TOWARDS yourself so you can self monitor the recorder screen (my reason for buying). MINUS ONE STAR for not planning the capsule system better so that gain controls are on the unit near the sound recordist rather than near the talent. It is this one flaw in the capsule system that will most definitely prevent me from further investing into the ZOOM capsule ecosystem...because they will eventually learn from that mistake and improve the next generation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extension Cable for Zoom H6 The extension cable ECM-3 is a needed feature for the recorder since otherwise you can't monitor the levels of your top capsule. Now I can separate the mic from the dials and use the shot gun mic off the recorder. It is very expensive so I had to give only 4 stars for that. Although it is high quality, the price should be dropped by around $30-$40 below what it sells for. This is why we have so many oversees knock offs.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good first try - needs modification Works as advertised. Because the cable extension to the mic is so rigid, it can be very difficult to mount in the position you would like. Also the connection to the mic housing is hard wired so if you are screwing on the mic, you end up twirling the cable around your extension arm. A mini-XLR jack at this point would sure help out with mounting after the arm is in place. Finally, a quarter inch mounting hole in the base of the of box that the mic attaches to instead of the permanently attached mounting swivel would allow the use of other more versatile mounts and cut down on hardware. I hope zoom will consider these small redo's. I'll be the first in line. In spite of all this, I'm glad I have it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful, well-built cable for off-recorder mics I appreciated the small contact covers which were included to protect them while not in use. The unit performs exactly as I expected, allowing off-recorder microphone capsule placement up to approx 10 feet from the H6. NIce to be able to also store by simply connecting the cable ends- this is a secure connection which I use as my default while traveling. I wish that it was less expensive, but otherwise I'm completely satisfied with this cable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very handy accessory for using the Zoom Mic Capsules! Works great for using the Zoom mic capsules on booms and at distances away from the recording unit. This way there is no chance of interference by bumping the recording unit accidentally. The only thing to be mindful of is that the gain adjustments are on the mic itself, so you will have to set that manually on the mic. Not an issue if the mic is close by, but if it is on a boom or across the room, you have to set it and forget it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A critical add-on for any Zoom H4 or H6 if you are trying to decide between an H5 and the new H4N Pro, this product may help make up your mind. It allows you to place the KH5 mic capsule in a location separate from the hand held unit. This is a real advantage when placing the entire unit would put it in a place (such as on top of a pole next to the sound board,) where setting or adjusting the levels would be inconvenient or impossible.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zoom ECM-3 Extension Cable with Action Camera Mount (9.8') This cable extension for the zoom mic capsules is handy when you want to place the mic capsule in a different location so you can keep your actual field recorder close to you for settings changes. The extension cable is long enough and the action mount comes with a swivel base with a 1/4-20 female thread on the bottom.
